The Power Of Prayer


There have been many times in my life when I have stood witness to God showing off - Performing such incredible miracles just because He can... Just because He loves me and mine....

A few years back - my youngest had a MRI done - the technician told me that he saw something he did not like - a man with 25 years experience... I called my church and asked for urgent prayer requests... The following Sunday - my daughter wanted to go pray at the alter during the invitational prayer time - When we were done praying to God for answers and healing - we stood up and behind us and around us were several members on their knees praying along with us.... That Monday - the doctor's office called and said her brain was normal (there was a cyst or something there and it disappeared)... I believe a miracle occurred...

Many years ago I was in renal (kidney) failure and was on dialysis... I was at the lowest point in my faith and hope... My husband I decided to go to church one Sunday (we were not church going folks at the time) I remember the pastor telling us that God does not want us to worry.. God wants us to give Him our worries and concerns... He wants us to rely on Him... The pastor said to just go into a room and say "God take this worry away from - I'm tired of worrying" So when I got home - I went into another room (so my husband would not think I completely lost it) and said "God take this worry from me... I cannot do this anymore" and I laid down on the bed and went to sleep..... That night - I woke up with an 105 fever... I was rushed to the emergency room - the doctor came in and said - I have some good news and some bad news.... the bad news is the dialysis shunt has a staph infection and the good news is your kidneys are working and you are off dialysis..... Again God answered my prayers.... He gave me a miracle... By the way, that was 15 years ago and my kidneys are still working.....

There have been many more times when God showed His mercy and love. I love that I can talk with Him anytime.... anywhere.. I am thankful that He will always be there when I call Him... Today - many people celebrated National Prayer Day -Let's not stop at just one day of National Prayer... but let's keep it going Every Day....

The Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. Romans 8:26

Thank you for reminding us that the Spirit intervenes also when we don't know how and what to pray.

Not only we acknowledge that we are limited when we pray, but praying takes our minds off of worries and help us remember that there is no worry or problem that is bigger than the God we serve. And He truly works in mysterious ways.

Happy Mother's Day to you sister and God bless you always.
